Wrexham striker Nick Rushton pens new one-year contract

Striker Nick Rushton has signed a new one-year contract with Conference Premier side Wrexham.

Rushton, 22, has played 16 times for Wrexham scoring three goals and spent an extended loan spell with Barrow last season.

"My big aim for the season is to try and cement my place, get regular football and try to help Wrexham," he said.

"I feel like I have progressed during my time at Barrow."

Rushton added. "Now I want to come back and show what I can with Wrexham."

Defender Anthony Stephens has rejected a new contract and has left the club.

"I'm a little bit disappointed he has decided to look elsewhere," said manager Kevin Wilkin.

"The reality of first team football, he felt, will be a little harder to come by at Wrexham than elsewhere."
